December2007and the LV EF was60%.After 2 months i become very

weekandlossed more than 10 kg wt2D echo showed LA size as 5.9 and LV EF

as35%,prosthetic valve funcctiong well.After taking treatment I was all

right with 60% LV Efand improved wt to 62kg.surprisingly since 15days

iam getting week.On doing 2D Echo,the LA size is6.9cm  n LV EF is 60%

and the NT-proBnp is 79.1.

     Iam taking tab cordorone-100mg once daily,

Lanoxine-.25mg(1/2tab),metoprolol succinate-50mg(morning),25mg(bed

any procedure to reduce the size of Lv size.Is it a reason for getting

week n weight loss.
